Design Optimization of a Brushless DC Motor (BLDC) using Ansys Motor-CAD and OptiSLang | On-Demand Webinar

About the Webinar:

From simple tools like drills to complex machinery such as industrial robots, a wide range of devices utilize brushless DC motors to convert electrical energy into rotational motion. These motors, also known as BLDC motors, offer numerous advantages over their brushed counterparts, including higher efficiency and reduced maintenance requirements. As a result, they have largely replaced brushed motors in various applications. While both types of motors operate on a similar principle, generating rotational motion through the interaction of magnetic poles, the control mechanisms differ significantly.

BLDC motors require a complex controller to convert single DC power into three-phase voltage, whereas brushed motors can be controlled by simply adjusting the DC voltage. The shift from conventional brushed motors to BLDC motors is motivated by higher efficiency, higher torque, smaller size, and enhanced reliability. BLDC motors have been widely employed across multiple sectors such as robotics, drones, automotive, and aviation.

In this on-demand webinar, we offer an in-depth, step-by-step demonstration of utilizing Motor-CAD and PyMotorCAD, the Python scripting for Motor-CAD, for analyzing and designing BLDC motors with various configurations and control techniques. We will showcase the optimization process of BLDC motors, emphasizing objective functions and design constraints using optiSLang.

Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques, optiSLang constructs optimal prediction metamodels, efficiently exploring the design space and providing insights that traditional optimization methods may lack. This enables engineers to make well-informed decisions faster, leading to more innovative designs and shorter time-to-market.
